Hello. This is Paula Husar, principal of Palmerton Area Senior High School. As we are about to begin our third week of school, I need to share some important reminders.
Excuse notes for absence must be submitted within three days of a student’s return. If a student has a medical appointment, please forward the note from the physician or dentist. Early dismissal notes must be brought to the office in the morning. Also, if you are planning a vacation, you should submit a vacation request form one week in advance of the planned vacation. (The vacation forms are available in the attendance office.) Everything you want to know about attendance can be found in the 2021-2022 Student Handbook. Also note that many of these requirements are taken right from the Pennsylvania State Code for School Attendance Policy. All students through the age of 17 must be in school on a regular basis.
If you have any questions about attendance, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Cohen at 610 826-3155 x2226. You can also contact me directly at 610 826-3155 x2214.
Thank you and enjoy the rest of your evening.
